Case study – lanap treatment saves completely loose
It’s not natural to have a loose adult tooth. It may be loose as a result of strong biting powers, such as those experienced by people who grit their teeth. It may also be the result of periodontal (gum) disease or another infection that has damaged the gums and bone that protect the tooth. Whatever the trigger, we’ll need to act quickly if we want to save your tooth.
The first step is to ascertain the exact cause, as this will determine the recovery path we should take. For example, if you grit your teeth, you will need to use an occlusal guard or get your bite (teeth) modified. When it comes to gum disease, we’ll concentrate on eliminating dental plaque, which is a thin layer of bacteria that feeds the infection, as well as tartar (calculus). This brings the infection to a halt and reduces the risk of further injury.
While we’re treating the underlying problem, we may need to splint the loose tooth. This is a set of techniques for linking loose teeth to more secure neighboring teeth, similar to how pickets in a fence are attached. Temporary or permanent splinting is an option.

You can become worried if you discover a loose tooth. However, just because a tooth is loose doesn’t mean it can’t be saved. In reality, there are a variety of techniques available in modern dentistry to address the issue of a loose tooth. However, in order to have the greatest chance of success, you must take some steps, one of which is to see a dentist as soon as possible.
It’s likely that you have a loose tooth for a number of reasons.
